I never have a shortage of Deloitte Colleagues that want to participate in NASCIO, especially the conferences. When the sponsorship opportunities come out we jump on them right away to secure a large number of registration slots and to maximize the visibility of the Deloitte brand in NASCIO materials. After the conference we are always very pleased with the access to State Members and the conversations we are able to have with them.

As a long-time member and sponsor of the National Association of State Chief Information Officers, Motorola Solutions values the many networking opportunities with the state members. In turn, I believe the CIOs value our commitment to state government. Through our various sponsorships, we also have the opportunity to share educational documents on NASCIO's resource site and participate in their Community forum, keeping Motorola in touch and in sync with CIOs between conferences.

The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) provides our company a unique opportunity to gain exposure with key decision makers in state government throughout the country. The NASCIO agenda and conferences are focused on sharing best practices and solutions, and they foster a culture that encourages partnership between the public sector and service providers. There is no simply no better place for us gain insight into the issues that states face and build relationships with the decision makers involved in these initiatives. The format and size of recent conferences lends itself to having meaningful conversations between and among state officials and service providers and also between providers. The round tables, the networking events and the general presentations are all excellent inputs to help us align to state needs. The event this year was very well done with strong speakers, a great location and well attended networking events. We look forward to future events.
